A beautiful shot of the storm’s surreal clouds as it rolled by the West end of the Oceanic porch.
After weeks of hot and dry weather, the grass on Star had begun to turn brown and most of us had begun our routine of swimming at the dock three times a day. With the Island packed with 300 guests from All Star 1, the stage was set for a lively and exciting thunderstorm that turned into a night of much needed rain.
The cloud formations were amazing and remarked on by more than one person even though the storm forced the end of the Pelican-Conferee softball game in the fifth inning. Below we’ve posted a few of the best shots which captured this idyllic Island moment.

The storm’s approach from behind the Summer House. Bolts of lightning could be seen in the distance (although we couldn’t catch one).
Some of the amazing cloud formations (even though this storm preceded Tropical Storm Arthur by a day).
All Star 1 crowded onto the porch as the staff worked to shut windows and make sure everyone was safe inside the perimeter road.
Although we all hope for sunny days on Star, this shot demonstrates how fun a storm can be to watch from the safe confines of the porch!
